Earlier this month I met with the Wensleydale Fundraising Group members and their supporters for a cheque presentation to the charity, from the Group's 2014 fundraising.

A wonderful £26,888.14 was presented in a lovely evening event, where supporters came together to celebrate the Group's fantastic achievements, since founding in 2012. The Group do a variety of fundraising activities including hosting an annual Beating Blood Cancers Ball, which this year alone raised £15,500!

The above photo shows the Group and supporters coming together to present the cheque from the 2014 fundraising total, and I'm delighted to share since founding the charity have raised over £76,000 to beat blood cancer - amazing!

Many thanks to the Group and all involved in this support and fundraising. The Group are currently getting plans together for their Ball, so watch this space for updates!

That's an absolutely staggering amount to raise in one year - what a fantastic effort! We're so lucky to have such amazing supporters and as a blood cancer survivor myself I cannot tell you how much of a difference your support is making to blood cancer patients. Keep up the good work and have a fantastic Christmas!
